Every year, 25 one-minute films are selected by Filminute from thousands of international submissions. The shortlisted films are voted on by a respected jury and a global audience of filmmakers and film fans participating from over 125 countries. 

Filminute is now encouraging filmmakers worldwide to enter their one-minute masterpieces for review before the deadline on August 20; the festival and competition runs from September 1 – 30.

The festival is free to enter and increasingly identifies serious filmmakers aspiring to make a feature film. Submitted films will need to meet a set of criteria listed on the Filminute.com website, and films are accepted from the categories of fiction, animation, documentary and mash-up.
